The Sims 3 is set for release here in the UK tomorow, I have spent the past week playing around with the final version of the game and I can now bring you my ‘evil’ verdict on the life simulation game. Now put your mind in Sim mode, select ‘Read the rest of this entry’ and learn more about The Sims 3.
Found this over on Offworld; Mirror’s Edge 2D, in 2D, done by Brad ‘Fancypants‘ Borne in collaberation with EA, in 2D. What’s that? A minor (albeit excellent) indie dev getting help by the big boys? I wonder how on earth the game might play out. Maybe it’s a mess with EA’s fingerprints smudged all over the clear brilliance of a talented flash developer, or maybe it’s just a jolly good laugh? Well, I had a bit of a play, and things are pretty positive.
EA has just arrived on Steam in a big way with Spore, Warhammer Online and Command and Conquer: Red Alert 3 to mention just a few of the big names that have taken residence on Steam. However I want to take a bit of a look beyond the obvious fan boy reaction about how great this is, and yet not get lost in the cynical view that this is the death of Steam. Hopefully this will provide you with a balanced look on how this latest development may impact on Steam (and in turn Valve), EA and maybe some other topics. If you wish to learn more, then read on.
